hello i was having sharp pains on the right side of my head around the upper temporal and lower parietal area of my skull for about a day. kind of the pain you get from a brain freeze but less severe and shorter. they are not bothering me anymore i just wanted to know is there anything to be worried about.
The pain would come and go it would last about 1 to 3 seconds throughout the day the next night i went to the ER the pains had left me but i still wanted to know if it was anything that i should be worried about. The doctor checked my eyes and had me to touch my nose with my finger and other similar tests and also checked my pupils they said everything was fine and just to take Advil if i had the pains again.
I also noticed that the area where the pain was coming from is now kind of sore
to the touch. This just freaked me out because i have never had any kind of pain like this and scared that it could be something severe
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
The symptoms of pain around the upper temporal and lower parietal area of skull along with soreness can be due to pinched cervical spinal nerves. It can also be due to neck strain as in wrong posture or overuse of computers etc. Try a massage and see. Alternatively you can visit a chiropractor and see.
If the pain and soreness persists or returns again and again, then you will need to rule out two thingsâone is pinched nerve and the other is ear infection. Hope this helps. Take care!
